(starts at 13:30 in)

Before Rebel Wilson was Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect, she was dating a guy who worked for Fat Pizza. How cute was the 17 year old in that 2003 episode?

ABC needs to be Spanx’d for Super Fun Night
October 2nd, 2013 under Rebel WIlson. [ Comments: none ]


First off I want to say that I really wanted to love Super Fun Night, I really did, but I hated the show that debuts at 9:30p on ABC. I even hated it more than I despised Whitney. I can’t believe I am saying that there is a show out there that I think is worse than Whitney, but I am.
Rebel Wilson is good as the bit part actress who steals a few scenes and she’s great on talk shows (which how we got stuck with this dud), but she sucks as a lead. She actually created a character that is very unlikable. I mean you should want to root for her, but you are not.
See Kimmy (Wilson) was a loser in high school and now she is grown up trying to be like one of the popular people at her job and when she hangs out with her three HS buddies. She works at a professional business and yet she acts like a dumb kid. I mean I am not even her boss and I would fire her a$$. I acted immaturely at work, but I never worked at place that called for me to be mature like her job. And that is just one of the many issues I have with the show.
See you guys are lucky that you not going to see the pilot. It was so bad and so hated (I am assuming from my lack of love for it), that ABC pulled it and decided to debut the show with the second episode. Well in these two episodes we have seen her in her Spanx, not once, not twice, but three times. It is not funny and I don’t want to see it. It is not a pretty site. I am not saying this because she is not skinny, I am saying it because Spanx without clothes over them look ugly. Seriously tonight’s show beings and ends with her in her Spanx. Why?
Rebel is also known for singing thanks to Pitch Perfect, a movie I quite enjoyed. Well tonight I found out as she sings Meat Loaf’s I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That) that she can’t sing. I actually shed a tear when she belts out the tune. One of the actresses turns her performance into a duet and that is the only thing that sort of saved the song for me. Meat if you are thinking of watching, please don’t. Take the money and run like a Bat Out of Hell with it.
Now when it comes to her friends on the show, Marika (Lauren Ash) and Helen-Alice (Liza Lapira) they are just as unlikable as Wilson and I liked Lapira on Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23. I mean the point of the show is here are three high school friends who were losers in high school and now is there chance to leave that all behind, but they don’t. Because of that, you just don’t like them and that makes it hard to like the show.
And don’t get me started on her boss (Richard Royce), he is the characterure of the blue collar worker who lands a top job because his daddy owns the company. He takes a liking to Kimmy because he is the black sheep of the family and she is everything his father would hate. We saw his type in so many movies in the ’80s and his character is just as unlikable now as he was then.
Finally there is the bitch (Kate Jenkinson) and she is the only I like on the show. That give you a hint how bad it is?
Like I said at the beginning, I wanted to like this show because I liked (yeah now I don’t any more because of this show) Rebel, I like the producer Conan O’Brien and I like sitcoms. But it is so bad that I hope it doesn’t hurt the trend of sitcoms having a much needed comeback.
My prediction this show will be gone by next Thursday because it will bomb after Modern Family and hurt the declining Nashville. What I hope is that ABC is wise enough to replace this show with The Goldbergs that is a perfect fit for that timeslot. The Goldbergs is the perfect family show and my prediction is that it will wind up being ABC’s biggest new show at the end of the season domestically. I think Agents of SHIELD will do huge internationally and The Goldbergs will great here.

Is Super Fun Night in super trouble?
September 20th, 2013 under Rebel WIlson. [ Comments: none ]


When Paul Lee, president of ABC Entertainment Group, announced that he was doing a sitcom with Rebel Wilson, his excitement for it got us all excited. Then we watched the pilot and our excitement waned. I guess those of us who saw it weren’t the only ones who were disappointed with it because less than 2 weeks before the series premiere, the network has opted to air the second episode instead of the pilot. Most of the time when this happens, the show is in trouble. And who knows, maybe episode 2 is a whole lot better and will sway us towards liking the show. But after reading this description for it, “Kimmie wants the gang to broaden their horizons and try something they’ve never done before. But she’s not so brave when she finds out their next super fun night destination is a piano bar. Can she face her biggest fear, singing in public?”, I don’t think that will be the case.
I am still hoping that show has gotten better as they started to film more episodes because I like Wilson and Conan O’Brien, but the pilot was such a let down that I am not sure I even want to watch the second episode. Although I kind of like the second episode of Dads and I hated that pilot the first go around. So maybe there is a glimmer of hope for the show?

Why, ABC? Why?
May 14th, 2013 under Rebel WIlson. [ Comments: 1 ]



ABC released the first trailer for Rebel Wilson’s new show Super Fun Night and we are seeing the actress in a tiny bikini with lighted hearts over her nipples and crotch over Spanx. Really did we need to see that? I mean she is a funny actress, but did she need to go there?
I know she is a proud of her body and I am good with that, but still why?
Since there is a comment about it, I would say it even if she were skinny. It just isn’t needed. She could sell a show on her own popularity and didn’t need to do this. She didn’t do it in Pitch Perfect and she still became wildly popular after it.
